This paper presents a three dimensions (3D) model of optical power distribution in a diffused cellular indoor visible light communication (VLC) system. To achieve an ideal system which has a maximum coverage area with a minimum power consumption, both hexagon geometric structure and holographic light shaping diffuser (LSD) are employed. We analysed the mathematical models for both square and hexagonal structures with and without using LSD. In addition, the practical system consisting of a (Luxeon Star/O) royal blue LED as a transmitter is used to verify and evaluate the system performance. The system operates at a date rate of 5 Mb/s using the on-off keying non-return-to-zero (OOK-NRZ) modulation format. The simulation results show that using hexagon geometry and a 30o holographic LSD diffuser, the received optical power distribution becomes uniform. The coverage area of the cellular link is therefore significantly extended by 343%. In addition the experimental results for a single cell system are also presented.
